Im looking for your help ladies. Apologise in advance for the lenghty post.
My daughter is approching 20. Was put on the pill at 14/15 due to heavy very painful periods. Starting taking Yasmin and worked a treat to start with. About 18 months ago started spotting - should point out by this time she had long term boyfriend so was also using as contraceptive. Went to docs who advised that her body may have got too used to Yasmin so changed to Microgynon 30. Ok to start with but then had terrible spots and painful acne on back. Back to docs who advised using Dianette but did say couldnt use this long term. Dianette cleared up the acne but she did start getting thrush and wasnt sure if it was related to the Dianetter.
Back to docs for advice as she had been on this pill for approx 8 months and was initially told should only use it for 6 months. Anyway decided to go back to Yasmin. Again ok to start with but has started spotting again ( must say she has terrible mood swings on Yasmin too) so wants to change pill.
Problem is we dont have any idea what others to suggest so was hoping that someone out there could help. Ive read decent reviews about Mercilon?
Advice re which combined oral contraceptive to use
